Improving identification of potentially septic patients
To improve identification, it is recommended to have a consistent approach to every patient who is identified as meeting SIRs criteria. Use our prior posts on sepsis for more education (New Sepsis Guidelines) (Qsofa Score). It is also recommended to utilize a smart phrase to identify any potential infectious etiology and medical decision making to prevent missing a potential source of infection, such as an indwelling catheter or orthopedic device.
